Welcome to Mulberry School

Welcome to Mulberry School The Mulberry School is an independent, private, non-profit school that provides children with the opportunity to learn in an environment that values curiosity and natural development. We work to "nurture the innate love of learning" by teaching children how, as opposed to what, to learn.

Serving the Bloomington-Normal community since 1971, Mulberry School is a cooperative institution where parents have the opportunity to participate in nearly every aspect of the school. It is this support and input that allows us to provide a unique learning experience for our students.


Two for Two's
Preschool (3, 4, 5 year olds)

  • We have had recent changes to our school calendar. We will have school on May 22, 26, 27, and 28. May 28 is Field Day and May 29 from 9-11AM is our Farewell Breakfast Picnic. More details to come!
  • Fall School Registration - August 4 will be our all school registration to drop off paperwork. This is different than in the past and this procedure will help Carol and Christine be sure they have all the State Board of Education requirements before the start of school. It will run from 10-2 and 4-7 on August 4. If you will be on vacation, you can turn in the paperwork AFTER that date but not before. Thank you!
